South West Ambulance NHS Foundation Trust has introduced a remote clinical triage team, direct referral of patients to Same Day Emergency Care Departments, as well as deploying Hospital Ambulance Liaison Officers to improve the flow of patients and reduce handover delays. This will allow ambulance crews to respond to incoming calls more quickly and improve response times. The Trust is also recruiting additional Community First Responders to improve response times in rural areas in Gloucestershire.
